The Mole that has no luindoiv for tie fan,
“ Finds jet a light that teadi to genial love.”
f A GREAT part of mankind are held in bond-
age to one ab'urd culb.ra or anoUier—but
^rhaps a more ridiculous and niifchievous deviaii-
on from the laws of nature and reai'on, never ob
tained than the Celibacy of the Cleigy. 'I'his is a
trite fubjeft of declamation ; but all that has been
written, or could be urged againit it, would have
proved ineffedhial,had notthe rays of political know
ledge recently opened the eyes of mankind to their
true interell. Their is now a fair prolpeft that this
intolerable yoke will be taken olF the clergy of the
RAman Catholic church ; and the door ol honour
able love, and connubial felicity, be opened to them
in common with their fcllow-nien. “ Marriage is
honourable in allIt is an inllitiliion wile, politic,
and benevolent initfelf—and leatls to all the tender
charities tliat knit the family of njankind in the hap-
pied unities ol love, concord, and peace.
Whin I behold a well-regulated happy family,
the objeit inJpires tlie moll plealing I'enlalioiis and
refl edions. I call my eyes back to the period when
'the parents of a lovely progeny firfl commenced the
acquaintance tlult has proveil the origin of fo many
agreeable circumRances. Happy- moments of love,
honour, and mutual contidcnce !—How refined and
delightful the fweet intercourfe of kindied minds !
Their mutual aitr.adions, cemented by the facred
bonds of wedlock, have gathered llrenglli with ad
vancing years—-and, their lad fctling fun fliall go
down in peace. Wlien this conneflion is Ibuiuied
on proper principles, it is not fuhjed to thofe pertur
bations and depreflions of fpirits, which itndci' the
marriage ftateajcRto tli« ihoughtlefs libertine, and
make the timid waver and doubt till tinie,extinguini-
tngthc'beftpalltohs m the human benrt, creates art
indiiference either topleufingor being plealed. The
cares of life in every ltHtc«« ltf5ny—In the mar-
ried'ftate they are divided, as they incrcafe—and
, the pleafures of life are doubled—the mind retains
its natural foftnefs and generous fym|)athy—and
having a variety of objeiis to engage its attention,
thofe ohjeids interell its feelings, and animate its ex
ertions, till its felicity con/ills m living to the hap- '
pinefsofits cbnncidions, and of mankind. Society
derives its bellfecurlty from the attachnlents which
originate in the ties of family. Fathers, motlierst
and children are the fureft and bell pledges of fideli
ty to the comraonw'calth—to thofe endearing appel
lations notliing is indifferent, that has reference to
the peace and profjlerity, the misfortune or niifery
of their country ; but the voluntary exiles from the
temple of Hymen, while they violate the laws of
rcafon and fociety, in palling through life in the fo-
litary walks of b.iehelorifm, lofc by degrees the belt
a'Feaions—they conirUft a temper of inll-nfibility to
the happinefsor infelicity of their fellow-creatures ;
and from neglcdling and being neglefloi! by the he/f
prfcr of our fpecies, they iie|nii e a inorofe and cenib-
riou'- dirpoliiion—and making war witli the woild

I T is owing in a great degree to the want of in
formation, that the people are fo often ftifpicious
of their rulers, and entertain the idea that the in-
tcreft of the people and the interell of the govern
ment is unconneiSed ; and that the latter have no
objeft but to aggrandize thetnfelves, acquire unli
mited power, and lay heavy burdens upon their con-
ftltuents, which they themfe! ves mean not to feel
the iveight of. ReRlefs and lifiippointed mcTi, o\n

P.draR cfa letter from Paris, dated Ofiober 16.
“ The inhabitants of this city w ho happen to ihink
that the mob tire not infallible, fcaicely dare open
thcii lips in j.ublic about aifaiis. Such is the {itna
tion of alfaiis at prefent, that a b.old calumny, bold
ly propagaled, would be fufiicu nt to n akeilic n ob
proceed to extiert dies of the moll alaihiing naltirc,
liefoie they wotild t.ikc lime to ci.nlidc-r whether or
not there was the fmalleR foundation for fuch vio
lence. If one of the rabble /hould hap]ien to point
to a man, and cry out “ aiilloc rate !” the death tif
the wretched man would probably be the conle-
“ J his is U't a mifreprefentatiop or an exaggera
tion ; witli my own eyes 1 faw an iiiRancc tlmt ful
ly warrants the a(ictt;on. A clergyman I'fthe name
of Lc Roi, liad tlie nii-.fortiine to bill under the dif-
pleaftire ol tb.e mob, who 1 ffolved to difpalcli him
.w ithout any iorrii of trial, and by their own fove-
rclgn authority. The poor man feeing fome people
advance towards him wiiliftiry in their looks, and
crying “ ariftocnite !” inllantly ran into a lioufe for
Rielter, and afeaped by a back door. Tlic mob foon
followed, dragging wit an Abbe who happened to
be in the fame bottfe. They roared out tliat tlic-y
had g6t the Abbe le Roi. and ftvore tlicy v oitld im-
rnediately hang him. Y IiilR they wera dragging
hint to the place of e.xenition, tl,c- mifcrtuTmic vif im
of their fury declared In the n-cll f.'icnm mannt-r,
that he was not tin- Abbe It- R-.j, b,,u they would not
attend to liiri'. When they gc.t Idm to tlie place of
execiilion, iliey fixed the fata! cord rwinj his neck.
While the) were E ing litis, th-; pool man with tears
in I'.is eyes, and liis hands flretched cut towards hca- ^
ven, called God to witncls he was not the they
took him for. '1 hey Rill continued deaf to his do- ^
durations, and were juR on the point ot hanging him’,
when the Marquis delay Fayette arrived. Having
requeued they would fulpend the execution for a few d
minutes, he alked what was the Abkc’e crime, 'i hc Q
mob replied, lie was the Abbe le Roi, tlic friend of >
the ariltocracy, and the enemy of the people. The «
Marquis told them they were miliaken: he fai 1 he (J
very well knew the perfon of tlie Abbe le Roi, and
he alfured them upon his honour, tliat the pcrlon
whom they were going to hang was not the man.
He faid he did not know who the Abbe then pivleat
w’as, but he declared he was not the Abbvle Roi. A
Oa this declaration of the Marquis, the poor Abuc £
was releafed ; hut had this nobleman arrived a quar- Q
ter of an hour later, he would have found the
murdered. Such is the government which prevails T
In this city.  y
“ There is reafon to believe that the majority of
the members of the alfcmbiy are extremely at erfe sj
to go to Paris, fearing their liveS to be in danger : J
but the I cpcalcd invitations of the Parifians, who S
will not bo c.-.fy without them,at length determined
their removal, though not before the alfcmbiy had j i
received a forntal deputation firm the commens of c
Paris, who engaged loanfwerfor tliepeiloiial fecu-
tity of every member.” ^
